Our schools ensures that each class is taught 5 different PE strand each year, namely Athletics, Dance, Gymnastics, Games and Outdoor and Adventure. Our school policy states that 1st and 4th classes attend a block of swimming lessons each year in Term 2, covering the Aquatics strand of the P.E. curriculum.
We have a standardised P.E. timetable which means that each teacher promotes the teaching of a particular strand at the same time. See our timetable attached here.
All students are provided with one hour timetabled P.E. per week, as a minimum. We are lucky to have some periods of the year whereby we have GAA coaches, Tag rugby coaches or a dance teacher come in to work with some of our classes. See some images of these activities in action here.
Our school has a shed to hold our P.E. equipment. 5th class students and the Active School Committee are responsible for keeping it neat and tidy.
Each school year we focus on the teaching of a particular strand.
